La côte sud Mauritius
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover La côte sud

There is no question that the most wild, mountainous and, especially, best preserved coast in all of Mauritius is in the south. Thankfully, authenticity prevails here. The relief culminates at the top of the Morne, the famous mountain with a tragic past. According to legend, it was a place of suicide for the slaves during the colonial period. The Gros Morne National Park has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008. In terms of climate, the lush vegetation here is due to the high percentage of rainfall, which is much higher than in the north. However, the beaches are much more wild and not as suitable for swimming in certain spots. For those with sensitive feet, it is imperative to wear shoes. However, put on a mask and a snorkel and you can see many underwater species. Once again, the hotels are located along the most splendid shores, but the beaches are neither long nor wide. For the more sporty types, head to the Morne, the most famous spot for fans of windsurfing and kitesurfing. For beginners of these sports, though, we suggest you head to La Prairie and the Baie du Cap, which are much easier for those just starting out.
